FROM SCOTT THE GOH TRAIL BOSS: 02/02/2019
GENTLEMEN ON HORSEBACK
2019 GOH Banquet
The GOH Banquet will be at the Timbercreek Grill 5:30 on March 16th.
Hey, if you have anything you want to throw in the giveaway, bring it on down!
This year’s banquet is a big deal because it is my 10th year as Trail Boss of this great group and we are doing well and ready for a big turnout at the banquet and the rides this year! You all have done so well continuing to support and promote your group, Gentlemen on Horseback…..you get it! We have a rich history and great traditions…without our past 71 years of history and the bonding of the riders and members we would be just another horseback ride. I think about all the lifelong friendships we all have made through our contacts in GOH…. it is incredible. Please take a moment, and really give it a long thought…………….. I personally know so many good friends that we have been around through the 20 years that I have been with the group. Thank you all!! It’s been a great honor being your TB! Spread the word we need more riders! Hope to see you all at the Banquet!!

2019 Men’s Ride
July 21st – 26th, 2019
Eagle Cap Wilderness, Halfway, Oregon
Alright here’s a good one, Lee Barton of Nyssa Oregon…400 miles south of us started the same ride that I did. 1999…and he has made almost every Mens ride, He and Susan every Banquet, every Mens and Ladies Ride for the last 10 years!!! I figure if he can drive Black Beauty all those miles to spend time with and be a big part of the group then we all can hit the trail again to Oregon to the Eagle Cap Wilderness area!
This is a great place to ride, we went there to explore the area last August with Lee, Susan, Karen, Greg, Mark Maddox, Patty, and Eric. We had a great time, really, the best riding area I have been! Mountains, great trails, lakes, streams long rides, short rides open country, good easy to moderate rides..and a couple of adventurous rides; wildlife and a great campsite..Karen rode her new horse Buddy and did great..good rides! I must say that every year. I think how could this ride be more amazing than last year….we are spoiled!
Last year Bill Thurstan put together a fantastic ride at the St Joe river that introduced us to a great riding area…we were welcomed warmly by the forest service folks and got another real nice referral letter. Thanks Bill!
We need to sign up for the ride early this year and there will be a limited number and a new cook. Bill is retiring from chasing us around and serving us, and his boys, great food and soups! Bill and his crew were always a welcome site! He promises to come and hang with us whenever he can, he’ll still be around.
2019 Eagle Cap ride July 21-26 $300.00 ….a glorious week in a spectacular area, please get your registration and checks in by June 30 or $325 late registration…we have to get this nailed down….last year 38 riders and 10 signed up early. Guys it makes it hard on us trying to do this volunteer deal….help us make it easier so we don’t loose our volunteers!
The important thing to remember is this is your group, thanks for helping out where you can…very much appreciated!!
Directions go to La Grande, OR, then Richland….Halfway, Oregon partway through town take a right by the high school then follow the Fish Lake road for 20 miles. There will be signs posted….Lee will be there about 5 days early…head up an hang out!! Several of us are going early, definitely worth it….early folks bring your own food…GOH starts feeding you Sunday dinner……We need a big turn out! Thanks for your support!
Coming soon! GOH 2018 Ride Directions
September 20, 21, 22
Calispell Basin, near Chewelah, WA
Come one come all! We are doing it again!
Inviting all GOH riders–past and present, new or old, their buddies and the many others that have joined us for this experience
This will be a fun ride!! We haven’t been There for about 5 years. I went to a NE Chapter BCH Poker Ride here and had forgotten just how fantastic it is up there…it was a great ride.
The cost for this 3-day soiree is $85/person. You can’t feed yourself for that!!!
Please get your registration in asap so we can get the cook the proper numbers to serve for.
It isn’t necessary that everybody rides. If you want to come for the camping and/or socializing, we invite you to do so. The main idea is to get all of us back together–whether you rode or not, you’re all great horsemen.
We urge you to register in by August 15th so we can get a handle on the food supplies we’ll need to purchase and meals to plan. Any questions, feel free to call one of us. Thanks, see you in September!
